    Just wondering if this is normal? Almost 30gb of VM in use? I'm encoding one of my DVDs and Handbrake is only using about 90mb of real memory while a bunch of background apps are using about 600-800mb of VM memory. Yesterday I encoded a DVD in like 20 minutes. I did a restart to refresh my memory but it's taken like over 2 hours of encoding and it's not done yet. :confused:

    Attached is a picture of my Activity Monitor.

    Ok strange, when I first open up Activity Monitor, it reads like it should but after about 1 second it changes everything. I was able to grab a snapshot before and one after it changes. What could be causing this?

    This is even happening right after a restart.
